May 10, 2008



RIP Sir, and thank you for your service to our Country.


Thoughts and prayers to Lt. Col. Kean's family. I am grateful for men such as him who gave so much on behalf of our nation.

My most heart felt condolence to the family.

May St.Peter greet him with --

'Semper Fi Marine. Job well done. We have been holding your position for you. Glad to have you here. The COMMANDER sends you his greetings.'


Thank you Lt. Col. Kean for your service to our country.

Col Jim - Ah hell yes - what a life... As one of your Oxnard High buddies - am gonna miss ya... God bless and keep you until I get there - then we'll have a beer or two and talk about old times playing football, swimming and the great times at Santa Catalina.... You are one of the best and I am sure ur family is devistated by their loss... But know that there is a room up there for Jim - the bible tells me so.. Tell I see ya there - Your bud Neil

Lt Col Kean was my XO as a Captain; my CO as a Major from 72-74 while assigned in Cambodia. He was ex-enlisted and drew tremendous respect from all his subordinates. He continued to communicate with me over issues I had shortly before he retired and remained the poised professional we all remembered he was. A true hero in my mind.

Just read the book "Last Men Out" about the final exit from the embassy in Saigon. My son is a Marine and I am proud to acknowledge the quality of leadership and the quality of men in the Marines. The story reveals the true quality of what it means to be a Marine. Your legacy lives on Col. Kean,
Semper Fi Col.
